No cupholders, sat-nav, or heated seats either, and a manual gearbox too.

Useless.

Word has it the buyer is going to rat-rod it with candy flake paint and put some dub deuces with rubberband tires on it just to get a reaction.

Don’t forget the piece de resistance, a single DIN radio head unit with a flip-up touch screen, with color-changing lights.

You just reminded me of the one advantage of living in a working-class neighborhood that's transitioning into a ghetto.

If my abode was within the jurisdiction of an HOA, I'd have been burned at the stake or lynched by now.

Nope, you'd just have to drown it out with a couple of speakers that sound like someone beating a rubber raft with an oar.  Cops pull up, just tell them you're trying to loosen some trim fasteners in your car interior...

Unlikely he was even close. Couple regulars at Pebble and Goodwood. Millionaires can’t compete with billionaires. 
@Mark That is the real muffler Uhlenhaut used. I couldn’t find pic today but I have one with muffler, skis on rack in back, in snow. 
I think they sold the blue interior car. Red iirc was Rudy’s own car

Do you think Jay Leno was "worthy" of being invited to the auction?

Maybe not but wouldn’t it be neat to see the car featured on Jay Leno’s Garage?

I think the plan would be to donate it to a Not for Proffit Muesum. With the  owners' caveat of first right of refusal. A $174,000,000 is a nice tax wright off.
